We Heart Vintage Lace

Are there others out there who have a fabric collecting compulsion? We do, admittedly. We wonder if we could figure out how to make stuff like this:


How about this lace medallion? Absolutely gorgeous! Can you imagine how people used to craft these by hand?

And how about this swiss lace? Swoon! So sweet and simple.


And this one looks like something a Klimt lady would wear— wild!:


We'll put learning lace crochet techniques on our To-Do List. ; ) But in the meantime I wonder what sorts of amazing things we could make out of these?!  All found on AntiqueFabric.com.  You should visit before we buy them out!

For lovers of lace imagining a lace-filled wedding, remember our lovely Vintage Lace save the date design.
